Getting Bundler and friends running

Anyone who has jumped down the rabbit hole of computer vision has run into dependency h*ll getting software to run.  I jumped down that hole again today with great success that I don’t want to forget (these directions are for Ubuntu, fyi).

First, clone BundlerTools:

https://github.com/qwesda/BundlerTools

This will download and compile (almost) everything for you, which is a wonderful thing.  The one exception is graclus.  This doesn’t have a direct download access anymore– you have to register, and then you will receive and e-mail with the download. So, to get the BundlerTools to work, you will need to post this someplace web accessible.  Then open and modify install.sh (https://github.com/qwesda/BundlerTools/blob/master/install.sh) and change the following line (128)

graclus.tar.gz https://www.topoi.hu-berlin.de/graclus1.2.tar.gz

to match your new download location.

Now change install.sh to executable:

chmod 700 install.sh

and run

./install.sh
